PHA signs renovation contracts

The Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) yesterday signed two contracts for works at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) and three contracts for works at the Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre (SRC) with a cumulative value of $860,000.

The first contract for repairs to PMH was signed with Waugh Construction.

The contract calls for the replacement of a 55,000-gallon water storage, gravity-fed tank at the hospital’s southern campus area, also known as the Hilltop.

“The original tank which was emplaced to eliminate water shortages and low-pressure potable water supplies to the hospital had deteriorated over time, requiring replacement,” the PHA said in a statement.

The second contract was signed with Telco Enterprizes Limited.

According to the PHA, the contract calls for the construction of a new Patient Registration Department, as part of the ongoing Urgent & Emergency Care Project.

“The updated design calls for the construction of six individual registration cubicles which will enhance patient privacy,” the PHA said.

“Also included in the design are client-friendly cashier’s windows, improving patient privacy and security, and a small common waiting area.

“High-end security systems will be installed along with sound absorption flooring and energy conserving LED lighting.

“The construction of the new registration department is expected to be completed in approximately seven weeks.”

The three contracts for major roofing repairs at the SRC were signed with Complete Maintenance Group, RB Construction and M&N Renovation and Builders, the PHA said.

The works, according to the PHA, will include the repair and replacement of the existing roofing finishes.

The PHA said the areas set to be renovated include the old Adolescent Ward, Maximum Security Ward, Doctors Lounge, Sewing Room, pump houses, Deputy Principal Nursing Officer’s office and the Eloise Penn Ward.

The completion of the roofing work at SRC is aimed at securing the facility in preparation for the 2019 Hurricane Season and beyond, according to PHA, who said the roof repairs are expected to be completed in approximately eight weeks.
